A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
Series of unrelated short stories covering elements of crime, horror, drama, and comedy about people of different backgrounds committing murders, suicides, thefts, and other sorts of crime caused by certain motivations, perceived or not.
An updated version of the famous 1960's TV series created by Rod Serling. Each week presents one to three tales about some unusual situation that turns out to be even more unusual than initially suspected. Whether the tone of the story is horror, suspense or humor, there is always a surprise twist at the end.Written by

The ghost-like image of Rod Serling flashes across the screen during the opening credits. He is the only host, if a previous one, of The Twilight Zone to be seen, since this is the only series where no narrator showed himself on-screen at any point. See more »
Original network episodes ran one hour, with two or three stories per instalment. These episodes were reedited into half hour episodes for syndication along with newly produced half-hour episodes, with each half hour consisting of a single story from the original one-hour version. See more »
I remember the "new" series of The Twilight Zone with much fondness. I grew up with them. I don't remember many films/TV programs from childhood, but one episode from this series stood out for me more than any other. It was called "The Burning Man" and it was the most eerie piece of film making I had ever witnessed as a kid. In fact it first inspired me to start film directing.
I know now that this short episode came from a book by Ray Bradbury, but it was the way the short film was shot that awe-inspired me. I seem to remember it featured a young Danny Cooksey as the kid. Had Piper Laurie in it too.
Please CBS, bring them out on DVD. (And do it proper with extra features!)
